Where'd you get 30k from? It's supposed to be 50k. But, if you can't find any 50k, then 30k will do.Interesting link, Ellwd. 30k wt? Jesus. I've been using 20 wt for the longest time. It's the best thing I've tried so far. I've tried various silicone sprays like CRC and petroleum jelly when I was a nub. Maybe I'll have to try this differential oil.
Really? Because I didn't read anything like that.what I read on that thread they said that 30k is the viscosity that is very similar to lubix, but most used 50k still, maybe since its easier to find(?)
here's the viscosity of Diff oil you want to look for = 50,000 WT (Fifty Thousand weight..... measurement unit should not be cST, It should be WT)
Nope, 30'000 WT is just a lot runnier and easier to apply but there are downsides because the 30'000 could drip out of your cube; the 50k stays where it is and spreads out when you turn the cube so you get an even coverage.
Same on my part. I could have sworn I read a post said that 30k works just as well as 50k.ok, then I probably read wrong at that time >.<
EDIT: ah, it was 30k cS... lolfail at my reading there >_>
Nvm. Knew I wasn't crazy.30K works just as well as 50K
How thick is 100k?? Could you compare it to the thickness of any other substance? Petroleum Jelly maybe?I have 100K (the thickest I could find) and 40k and I prefer the 100K. You have to be VERY sparing. I apply it with a 1ml syringe. These syringes are also available on ebay. Makes application MUCH easier.
You only need to use about 0.5ml for the whole cube (including core).
There's a pretty long discussion about this topic here:

To answer the question, good.
It is thick like a grease, however it is very sticky and hence the need to use it very sparingly. It takes about 20s to draw up 1ml into the syringe. I can take the top off the bottle and turn it upside down and it takes about 20s before any comes anywhere near the opening. The nearest think I can liken it to is golden syrup - only about twice as thick!How thick is 100k?? Could you compare it to the thickness of any other substance? Petroleum Jelly maybe?
